The Community Fort Belvoir, VA

Fort Belvoir is an Army post on the Potomac River in Fairfax County, Virginia. It's a large post that's divided into three main areas: the main post, Davidson Army Airfield, and Fort Belvoir North. Settled on land that was once a plantation, and founded during World War I, Fort Belvoir originally served as a training school for the U.S. Army Engineers. Now, nineteen agencies and numerous divisions, battalions, and commands use Fort Belvoir as their operating headquarters. A short 35-minute drive north from the fort and you'll find yourself in the ever-historical Washington DC, where you can spend a captivating morning paddling on the Potomac River, an afternoon spent roaming the halls of a Smithsonian Museum, an evening enjoying one of DC's iconic sports teams and finish off with a monumental meal at the Michelin-starred restaurant. This is the opportunity to be had when in Fort Belvoir, Virginia; and that's just if you head north! Head south and you'll follow along the Potomac River where you can partake in all the pleasures to be had on the water from fishing, to swimming, water boating and the like.
